Let's get it rolling!

Electric mountain bike


NEW - "Change your approach to change your approach".

A hiking holiday in the mountains, but without having to use your car to get to the start of the hikes. How will you get there? On foot and by bike, to reduce your carbon footprint!

Embark on a week of soft mobility: get to the trailheads on an electric mountain bike, hike up the mountain on foot, then return down the slopes on your mountain bike.

And to take things even further, combine your passion for the mountains with your desire to respect the environment by using public transport to get to Le Grand Bornand village!

Important : The programme is given as an indication.
The Aravis region is full of trails, each one more beautiful than the next. To vary the pleasures, the guides are free to use their imagination and to propose other itineraries! Situations beyond our control may also lead us to modify the itineraries and activities of the day (weather, level of participants, group safety...).


L'Auberge Nordique has several minibuses at its disposal to get to the starting point of the hikes, but some trips can be made with the participants' cars.

Level of participants: our guides are the best judges of the level of participants. If a participant does not meet the specified level criteria, he or she may be offered a more suitable course! The Auberge Nordique cannot be held responsible for any lack of level observed during the stay.

In the mountains, temperature differences can be significant if the wind picks up or if there is a thunderstorm. It is better to bring warm and waterproof clothes even in summer.

o Full board accommodation from Sunday for lunch to Saturday after lunch. Coffee at lunchtime and wine at the table included.
